The Bread Series


Back in boarding school, there used to be a little café close by that we visited on weekends for lunch. It was almost mandatory with my friends. Their range of sandwiches had has confused for the initial few weeks, by which we had sampled almost all of them. Window casings of the lovingly stuffed sandwiches, paninis and of course, desserts. Almost always I settled with a roasted vegetable filling and played with the bread with each order. Vegetables that are well grilled seasoned simply with some olive, garlic, salt and pepper taste just so delicious, and armed with good bread, makes the meal just perfect.

Le Artisan Boulangerie’s Ciabatta bread works very well with this filling along with a layer of beetroot pesto to add colour and of course, extra garlicky flavour. For this pesto, I combine it with some cream cheese to help add volume and creaminess. This is a good way to use up the leftover beetroot paste from the Spaghetti Cake and Pasta for a Princess. The vegetables are nicely grilled on a non-stick pan with, and just slightly charred for maximum flavour.

This sandwich travels well – simply wrap in a cling film and carry into your lunch box. However, I would reduce the amount of garlic so as to not to affect your co-workers 😉
